Inspired by Lucky's similar thread in Audiophile what were the biggest - or your most favourite - films released in the year of your birth? Not the deepest of threads, I know, but...

I was born in '76 too. My favourite and the film that was number one at the UK Box Office the day I was born......

I could lie and say it's a toss-up between Annie Hall and Eraserhead but who am I kidding - Star Wars all the way.
Or Close Encounters..

Quality thread

1979 was a good year. Alien, Apocalypse Now, The Warriors, Mad Max, The Muppet Movie & The Jerk all in with a shout.

But this genius takes it .......

The year I was born was quite shit. Apart from the four I listed above I can think of maybe two or three more I like but nowt in the way of masterpieces. Mind, it was the seventies - virtually everything was shit.

He's not going to have much of a running career now they've amputated his left leg and set fire to it.

Off the top of my head my favourite from 1987 is Lethal Weapon, but I'll look into it more later.

Going by the rest of the posters I assume you were born in '84 but this film was released in '89. I think you mean the first film, Ninj
